Guardian Angels

Many religions teach that each of us
 is given an angel at birth, one who  
protects and guides us. These
 guardian angels communicate with
 us through dreams, whispers in our
souls, and, often, through others. 


In the Old Testament, guardian
angels guided Moses and
Tobias; in the New Testa-
ment, Jesus was minis-
tered to by his guardian
angel in the Garden of
Gethsemane. What
gratitude we feel for
this evidence of God's
 love and grace.
